Subscribers to the UK’s biggest net service providers will have to “opt in” if they want to view sexually explicit websites, as part of the government’s attempts to curb online porn use.

The Guardian reports that a raft of changes are incoming on the back of a report by Reg Bailey for the Mothers Union of Britain.

“As you say, we should not try and wrap children up in cotton wool or simply throw our hands up and accept the world as it is.” He said.

“Instead, we should look to put ‘the brakes on an unthinking drift towards ever-greater commercialisation and sexualisation’.”

Bailey’s report asked for government and business to work together on initiatives such as ending the sale of inappropriately “sexy” clothing for young children, for example underwired bras and T-shirts with suggestive slogans.
